Walgreens has announced the launch of a new investment campaign in its Puerto Rican drug stores, which is set to amount to approximately $35 million by the end of the summer.
The investment comes as part of a recovery campaign following last year’s hurricanes and will see features such as new patient health rooms, an expanded beauty offering and FedEx OnSite services.
Having this month reopened its final drugstore in Toa Baja, the company is also developing its beauty offering in all Puerto Rico stores, which will include a bigger range from brands such as No7, Botanics, Soap & Glory and YourGoodSkin. According to the company, the stores will feature a new beauty consultation area where specially trained beauty consultants will help customers discover new products. A marquee beauty experience will offer additional prestige beauty brands in 10 locations.
Alex Gourlay, President of Walgreens, said, “We are very excited to not only rebuild, but continue to innovate in our stores by bringing new features and services to a community where we have provided trusted care for nearly 60 years.
“Our employees’ response in the community over the last year is the perfect example of what it means to work at Walgreens. Whether they were working to re-establish pharmacy services or going door-to-door to hand out bottled water, we could not be more proud of how our employees continued to care for the community. They, along with our customers on the island, deserve this commitment.”
